Subject: The Water Is Now Bluuuue!
Vacation frolics in full force here as a family hits the road and goes to Landa Park Texas. Still there! Anyways, they barbecue and swim, and dive, and swim some more. They do a LOT of swimming. lol. Actually quite fun, they're having lots of fun so why shouldn't you? Interesting how this film ALL OF A SUDDEN turns into color half way into it, as if they couldn't FULL color of the film, we just get snippets. The color scenes are actually quite jarring, adds a whole new dimension.
